Thoughts on Ichiro's SBs...

Postby beltrans_boy » Mon May 16, 2005 4:44 pm

Is he going to keep this pace up? Right now, he's slated to rack up 57 SBs this season. He's getting on base at a similar rate to last year. Coming into the season, I thought his SB production would go down with Sexson and Beltre hitting behind him, but it looks like it's done the exact opposite.

Can I expect the SB production to stay consistant? Will he stop running once Beltre and Sexson start hitting? Basically, what should his final SB numbers look like at the end of the season?

Thanks! ;-D

given the struggles of the whole seattle offense, it's no real surprise to me that ichiro is stealing more. as beltre begins to rake, i think you'll see fewer attempts from ichiro.

having winn batting behind him rather than reed should hurt his attempts, as well.

I think he'll keep running. His success rate remains excellent, so ... go Ichiro :-D

It's really just a matter of Beltre heating up if you ask me. I think he will end up with somewhere around 4-50 Sb's.

btw, if he's on pace for 57 what is Podsednik on pace for? 8-o

well, sexson has been hitting (albeit a sluggish .220ish i believe). he has 10+ dingdongs and 30ish RBI. he is doing exactly what you would figure him to do, but the avg. should get up to .250 or better.

In 38 team games he has 23 SB

over 162 that projects out to 98 SB

keep in mind he's missed 7 games - so if he continued on his current pace (23 SB in 31 games) and played in every one of remaining games (124) he is on pace for 115 SB
